The talented 24-year-old Swede will join Nick Heidfeld, who has been in all three seasons of the championship.“I’m thrilled to join Mahindra Racing at this exciting time. Racing in Formula E will be something genuinely brand new to me. It’s a step into the unknown, but I’ve had a very warm welcome by Mahindra Racing and I have a strong and experienced team-mate in Nick.“I’ve tested the car already and I look forward to intensifying our preparations during the two pre-season tests at Donington. I love new challenges and this is going to be a massive one, for sure. I’m fully aware that it will take some time to learn the trade of electric racing, as the technology in Formula E is so different to what I’m accustomed.“You need to be fast, as always, but you also have to be clever and energy-efficient. I also find the calendar highly exciting. We’ll be racing on street tracks in some incredible locations, and I can’t wait for Hong Kong.”It’s been a busy season for Rosenqvist after winning last year’s FIA Formula 3 European Championship. He’s raced a partial season in the U.S. in the Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires, where he won three races, was meant to race the Rolex 24 at Daytona in a PC car, drove the Spa 24 Hours with AMG-Team AKKA ASP and finished second (co-drove with Renger van der Zande and Tristan Vautier), and most recently, made his DTM debut at Moscow. He also tested for Chip Ganassi Racing’s Verizon IndyCar Series team at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
